'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson tells alarming, offensive story about atheists at Christian event
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/25/2015
Phil Robertson has made headlines again for making inflammatory comments about a person's religion or lack thereof.
The Duck Dynasty star and strict Catholic dished out a shocking, yet hypothetical, story about an atheist family as part of his speech in Florida at a Christian event on Friday, E! News reported.
Robertson was trying to make the point that people who don't believe in God likely condone violence because they feel they won't be judged or face consequences in an afterlife.
"Two guys break into an atheist's home. He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him," Robertson began saying at the Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast, per Right Wing Watch, according to E! News.
"And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot 'em and they take his wife and decapitate her head off in front of him. And then they can look at him and say, 'Isn't it great that I don't have to worry about being judged? Isn't it great that there's nothing wrong with this? There's no right or wrong, now is it dude?'"
Robertson continued: "Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, 'Wouldn't it be something if there was something wrong with this? But you're the one who says there is no God, there's no right, there's no wrong, so we're just having fun. We're sick in the head, have a nice day.' If it happened to them, they probably would say, 'Something about this just ain't right.'"
Robertson has been involved in controversy a couple times before for expressing his strong beliefs in public. He previously touched upon the subjects of homosexuality and gender roles, offending many people. He briefly got suspended from his family's show for making such remarks.
